I seem to be channeling my inner art fanatic today – I would normally say critic but I’ve nothing negative or remotely bad to say so that’s not terribly fitting either. Yes, as most of you would already know – I’m all about the love here so lets run with this “arty-party” mood of mine and I do hope you enjoy!
I am quite partial to a vintage frame “perched-on-wall” in any shape or form really however his art left me wanting to see more and I simply had to share it with you too.
So I popped over to the Jan Murphy Gallery in Fortitude Valley. The James Guppy exhibition “How sweet is the shepherds sweet lot!” runs until September 27 if you happen to be a Brisbane local and are able to visit too. If not, just check out his work below.
His art works are beautiful, moody, honest and magical. They are also fabulously absurd and their satire, possibly even chuckle worthy. They really do sit like little portals on the art gallery wall which transport you through conflicting eras, locations, time-zones and emotions. I do love art that is capable of all that!
I also quite liked that the art works were created around the vintage frames as an inspiration point and not as an afterthought.
I do hope you have enjoyed this little arty fix as much as I :-). If you would like to know more about these beautiful works please visit here.
p.s As per the direct image links – all photographs are via Jan Murphy Gallery – purely because I felt the artist would appreciate less glass glare and reflections from the images I took during my visit.
